My Pastor, Dr. James E. Delaney, will begin this summer using this Bible for our morning service and Bible classes so our congregation is purchasing this book. Dr. Delaney said this Bible is written in contemporary language and after purchasing and reading from this book as opposed to the King James version, I am inclined to agree with him. This book is written in language like we talk today which makes it easy to understand. I recommend this book to anyone who seldom reads the Bible because they do not understand it. The Good News Bible is the book for you. It can be purchased in either regular or large print.

The Good News Translation remains the easiest version of the Bible to understand, despite numerous efforts by other translations in the last twenty years to match its accomplishments. While not perfect, its balance of accuracy and clarity remain unmatched. The GNT is a 'common language' translation. This does not mean that its language is limited in vocabulary or reduced to a child's level of understanding. It simply means that it employs the language that both janitors and professors use most of the time in their everyday speech. This approach brings out the meaning of the text and explains cultural and linguistic aspects that were meaningful to the original recipients of the Bible, but which are perhaps no longer clear to us today. Yes, such an approach has its limitations, and you are sure to find some places where you wish the translators had done something differently. However, if you were to examine the best literal, word-for-word translation available today, the English Standard Version, you would quickly discover that it too suffers from limitations inherent in its translation approach, as well as finding just as many instances where the translators might have done a better job. At any rate, the best thing to do is to simply try the Good News Translation. Use it alongside your current translation for a few weeks, then see what you think. I think you will be most pleased.

We use these Bibles for the Religious Instruction Class at School. With the back to school discount on Text books B&N had the best price, even cheaper than the publishers. Books are hard covered and are extremely durable. This version lasts the whole 5 years that they use it at school. Great Buy!

This is a translation I actually enjoy reading, in a hardbound edition like you'd find in the pew racks at church. It is illustrated with simple line drawings interspersed within the text. There are brief introductions to the books and essential footnotes, but it's a pretty basic, no-frills Bible. The margins are narrow, and the print runs very close to the spine in the center. This is what I like least about the book because it is difficult to read unless opened completely flat. It was inexpensive, for a hardcover book, and over all I'm quite pleased with it. The pages are very thin so probably highlighting is out, and there is no room in the margins for notes, if these are things that matter to you.
